ACCCE Community Discussion – The Risk Assessment Process

ACCCE Community Discussion – The Risk Assessment Process

Improve your risk assessment by hearing from Angelo, a former regulator, with years of risk assessment experience. Ask Angelo your questions to validate your current practices against his knowledge of risk assessment best practices.

The Risk Assessment process will help you identify the highest residual risks that have a material impact on your business so you can allocate resources appropriately. The risk assessment is a foundational component of the risk program because it creates a strong defendable risk culture.

The risk assessment enables prioritization and tailoring of the risk-based control activities.

Join ACCCE for the next community discussion where guest speaker Angelo Coppola, Chief Anti-Money Laundering Officer of Globex 2000 and former regulator, will talk about the risk assessment process; specifically, how to measure the inherent risks a business is exposed to, how to evaluate the quality of controls implemented, and how to measure the risks that remain. Angelo will be happy to answer any risk assessment questions the audience may have.

For those studying for ACCCE certification, this is a great opportunity to reinforce concepts discussed in the Commercial cannabis Handbook.

This is a live event.

Community Discussion – Cannabis Risk Management Framework: Introduction to Risk Culture

Community Discussion – Cannabis Risk Management Framework: Introduction to Risk Culture

Improve your risk culture by hearing from Jonathan’s experience and asking questions to validate your current practices.

Building an effective cannabis risk management framework is critical to meet your business objectives. One of the starting elements of effective risk management is an effective risk culture. Risk culture is established when top management creates strong risk values and beliefs that are shared by all members within the business. Starting this process may seem daunting, but breaking it down into specific actions will help.

Join ACCCE for the next community discussion where guest speaker Jonathan Fornaci, the Chief Strategy Officer from Clarion Compliance, will talk about the internal control environment component of the CRMF, the importance of tone from the top in creating a culture of risk, how a Commercial Cannabis Business’s risk appetite and risk strategy impact business objectives, and how to formalize a risk culture through a risk program. Jonathan will also answer any questions the audience may have.
